Nation’s top theaters bail on ‘The Interview’ in wake of hackers’ threats

The nation’s leading theater chains are pulling the plug on screening “The Interview.”

Regal, AMC and Cinemark — the three largest chains in the United States — have decided not to screen “The Interview” when it debuts on Christmas Day in the wake of threats made by Sony hackers, said people familiar with the decision. The chains have asked Sony to postpone the release date of the controversial film.

Normally I would consider this a punishment worse than death, but Hollywood Liberals Had It Comin…

Al Sharpton Will Meet With Sony Exec Who Sent Racist Emails About Obama

    If North Korea is behind the hacks (and it appears a nation state had to be given the nature of the hacks) then the liberals have no one to blame but themselves as they pushed and fought for obama to be president and he is a weak, spineless president who hates america and glorifies her enemies. North Korea and all the other enemies at the gate see him as being soft and so they see no threat to hacking the US and only positives for trying.

    • Yup, North Korea just earned street cred.

      I’m almost positive that this is not North Korea.

        North Korean Hackers, no way, Chinese hackers. Without China North Korea would not exist.

          I don’t even think this is a nation state.

          I think it’s a bunch of really talented kinds that hate Sony and got very lucky due to some amazingly sloppy security, and they got very lucky.
          Did I mention that they mostly got lucky?

            The group releasing the data has been previously associated with north korea.

    meeting with and giving credance to a slimy liar like Sharpton is where I draw the line, Good time to avoid this movie and its production house.

    • If they had stood up to that race hustler I might have some sympathy. Meeting with Sharpton seems more a cynical ploy to mitigate their embarrassment at having been shown for the hypocrites they are.

      • ntt1

        the sad thing is the executive pascal did nothing out of the ordinary and ,in fact correctly predicted some disasters which is a large part of her job, As for all the other comments, they are just really common banter that we all carry out, that is where the hypocrisy comes in and now sharpton gets to feed on it.

    Hollywood, the entertainment industry, and the media are the biggest cowards in the West. As soon as their is some push back, even if its from a joke of a country like North Korea, they run for the hills. And they certainly won’t provoke islam out of fear and because as leftists they love a culture that hates the West. Much safer to produce more anti Christian films in the future.

    • Sony executives have been exposed as Liberal Hypocrites, no doubt they were all big Obama donors.

      My guess is Sony just wants this picture to go away so they can get back to being hypocrites.

      • David Murrell

        Normally one would sympathize with Sony for producing a film that one would hope criticizes North Korea. But as liberals, Sony cringes and cowers before North Korea’s attack. And theatres are now rejecting the movie — cringing and cowering as well. So I agree that one should let Sony stew in its liberal hypocrisy and cowardice.

  • The Goat

    Well, now I want to see the movie.

    • It’ll be on DVD someday;)

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        I say Netflix by Christmas.

  • Billy Bob Thornton

    I frankly think the film is in poor taste and even though I am not a communist but a nationalist I feel that bridging relations between nations ought to be done more often because the West doesn’t have the means to invade more and more for so-called democracy. The War on Terror failed back in 2008 with the financial crisis. Basically the democracy project is over and we ought to have policies of trying to bring nations closer. Finding ways to unify is another thing I support. These things and more are things I support and Obama ending the sanctions on Cuba is a good start. Ron Paul supports that and I am sure many across the spectrum support that as a good beginning as well.

    • Billy Bob Thornton

      What I am not saying is left wing or right wing as nationalists reject the traditional left/right spectrum as it is not sufficient to run a society properly. So ya I think the best way to go forward is to build nations that are independent from mainstream ideologies. Remember ideologies that are not nationalistic tend to be globalist and I am definitely anti-globalist.

        Your screwing with us, aren’t you?
        Ya’ GOT me!

        • Billy Bob Thornton

          Well no I picked the Canadian Action party since they are nationalist as well as the Progressive Canadian party.

    I had to laugh at some radio dorks today clutching their pearls over a movie about assassinating the North Korean leader but they would have loved the movie about killing Bush that came out during his term.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Oh my we won’t get to watch Rogen and Franco smoke weed and laugh at dick jokes for 2 hrs. What will we ever do?

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      If you smoke weed, can’t you pretty much laugh at anything for two hours?

    • Sony has bailed, no release even on DVD. They just want this all to go away.
